should try and search for some more in depth information than this, but basically the free mods are ones that can be done free of charge, providing you have the correct tools. There are numurous ones that can be performed, such as the one you mentioned FRA (Free Ram Air mod). I believe all of these can be found at installuniversity.com i believe. Good luck with the mods, but at best you may recieve 5-10 HP. I recently purchused a Ws6, and i am not even gonna mess the free mods. But, hey every little bit counts. Most of them will be replaced with actual mods anyway(ie> If you are gonna get an aftermarket lid anytime soon,dont bother with the FRA), so look at the website and decide for yourself.

A '!' in front of an item means negation/removal of that item, such as !CAGS for someone who has a skip-shift (CAGS) eliminator... also referred to as "delete" of that item

if you have questions look at the sticky for internet acronyms defined... i'm beggining to think the stickies are only good for showing someone since they don't read them from the beginning...it should be mandatory to have read the sticky's before posting

It happend to me and I took the ram air mod off and sold it. Lucky me I didn't kill the engine but it was flooded out with water. I must have one hell of an LS1 to live threw that.
